Ahmedabad (Gujarat): After winning the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad by 34-run with the combined effort of the batting and bowling unit at the Narendra Modi Stadium on Monday, Gujarat Titans skipper Hardik Pandya disclosed that he prefers being a bowler’s captain.
In the post-match presentation, Hardik said, ‘Very proud of the boys, two in two (making it to the playoffs twice in a row). The boys put their hands up and in challenging situations and we rightly deserve the playoff spot. There will be expectations and for me it was important to focus within the group. We ticked a lot of good boxes, we made a lot of errors but we were always there in the game and tried to stay consistent. Bowlers are very close to my heart. Sometimes batters take a lot of credit, for me I will always be a bowler’s captain and ensure they get due credit they very much deserve.’
With this win, Gujarat Titans became the first time to qualify for the playoffs. They have 18 points in the table with nine wins and four losses. While SRH is placed second last in the Table with eight points. They won four matches and lost eight.
